Editorial Management during Book Printing Jobs
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/4/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Jobs

During book printing jobs, editorial management is very important for the efficiency implemented. Planning tasks as part of the product development process include a schedule for the editing, design and production stages, the necessary clearance for permissions for both text and illustrations, a brief for the text and cover design, copy written for the cover, and a budget.

Schedule is preferably drawn up in advance of the delivery of the typescript from the author. A copy-editor can be booked in advance, and the design and production stages can be planned around the proposed publication date. Schedules can be more or less complicated, and can be done using software or simply a single sheet of A4. There may be a standard set of weeks allowed for different stages, but there is no formula set in stone. If a competing title is to be beaten to market, or if revenue is required within a particular financial year, the schedule may be severely shortened. If this was done with every title, however, there would be the risk that quality would suffer and there would be tremendous pressure on the staff involved. Here is a sample schedule.

Permission may need to be sought for the use of text and illustrations in the book. Longer quotations not covered by fair usage will need to be cleared, and for anthologies of poetry or prose some detective work may be required to track down the relevant copyright holders. A freelancer may take on the work of clearing permissions for an anthology. Usually the first approach is to the originating publisher, who may control subsidiary rights. Occasionally you will see a line in a book and the extract will appear without permission having been granted. The publisher has made a rights risk assessment.

Under the contract the author may have to clear and pay for the permissions. The publisher may still have to undertake picture research or brief a researcher, putting the cost of the permissions against royalty. If the publisher is responsible for obtaining copyright permission, the editor or researcher writes to the copyright holders.

Each illustration or table is labeled and compared against the accompanying text and caption. Caption and source copy are prepared. Drawn illustrations are prepared from copies of those previously published, if suitably amended, or from original line work, roughs or ideas. They are edited for sense and consistency before being passed to the designer or illustrator. The desired position of the illustrations is indicated in the text.

PMA RELEASES BOOK INDUSTRY SALARY SURVEY. The document provides book printing company at all revenue levels with the means to benchmark the salaries they pay employees in a wide variety of positions with those of their peer publishers. WHEN PHOTOCOPYING A NEWSPAPER ARTICLE, place a black sheet of paper behind it. The dark sheet will help minimize ghost characters from the other side of the paper.

NEED TO FIND PHOTOS FOR YOUR NEXT PUBLISHING PROJECT? The free website, PhotoSource International, will not only locate the source of highly specific images, e.g., split-rail, immigrant, explosion, and carnival (over a million listed in the index), but will give you the contact information of the photographer you can deal with directly and negotiate for the use of the picture. Put three-to four-line captions under the photos in your ads, brochures, and newsletters. Readers often skip the print, look at the photo, and read the caption. They will go back and read the text if your caption interests them.
